Sign [Q] What should I do with my HTC One ?


I'll receive my HTC One soon and I don't know what kernel and rom install...I have read many subject about it but it still be confuse in my mind and I don't want to spend a lot of time trying every kernel and rom. If you could help me to choose a kernel and rom (even the stock one it doesn't matter), it would be very nice.

Here is what i expect from my phone (from the most important) :

1 - Stability
2 - Autonomy
3 - Ergonomy (for exemple having very fast and accessible settings)
4 - Performance

And if possible, I'd like to (but this point must not counter the two first points) :

- Activate the HTC logo to lock and unlock screen OR lock and unlock via the tactil screen or gyroscope (with movment)

So, wich kernel and wich rom for my use ?

Pardon my english, I hope you got what I meaned and thank by advance!

I would simply stay on stock rom for best stability. the second best alternative would be to get s-off and convert your sense htc one into a GPE, for faster update cycle.

either way, you'd want with both a custom kernel such as elementalx for dt2w etc. for further customization you might want xposed + mods such as gravity box and others. for now however xposed doesn't support art runtime (some say art is much faster than dalvik, but myself didn't find it any more performant )

good luck

Rom comparison threads are not allowed. People prefer different roms for many different reasons, so no one rom is best for everyone.

I'd stay stock for a while, but to the dev section and read up on some of the ROM threads. then when you are ready to flash, you can try out the ones that interest you and see which ones you like.

As Stated It is all user choice. What may work for me may not work for you. I also advise you to stay stock for a while and do some reading. Re-writting the OS on your device is not something to be taken lightly. You could end up with a paper weight that is nothing more then a skipping stone. Do you research and put he time into it and you will save yourself alot of grey hair and heart ache.
